Roy Hindi Movie Review

Ratings:1/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

Did anyone who was attached to the film actually read the script before showing up on set? The one strength of the film is its terrific soundtrack, even if those infectious dance numbers do pop up in not all the right places. But that’s faint praise for a movie that limps lethargically for close to 2 hours and 30 minutes, all but collapsing in a predictable twist ending that you’ve guessed a long time ago.I’m going with one out of five for Roy. The unintentionally funny dialogues aside, it’s unlikely that you’ll be smiling very much through this misery.

Vikramjeet Singh has penned a story which is far from engaging or interesting. That it moves at a painfully slow pace and thereby tests the audience’s patience is just one of the many problems. On the whole, Roy is a confused film which will confuse the audience more than it would entertain. Despite a hit music score, it will prove to be a flop fare at the box-office.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:  Madhureeta Mukherjee Site:Times Of India

Debutant director Vikramjit’s premise is uncommon; the execution is stylish – with beautifully captured actors and ambience, but it turns into an emotional drama (often too complex) rather than a taut romantic thriller. It’s glazed with visual appeal and style (champagne, cigar, et al), and evokes curiosity too, but the soul of the plot fades into thick clouds of smoke.

As far as the film is concerned, debutante Vikramjit Singh steps into Bollywood with a film that is slow paced and long. His sense of storytelling needs to be more polished than this one. Brownie points to Singh for having captured the luscious beauty of Malaysia in its raw essence. On the whole, ROY is a film to be watched if you are a fan of thriller movies with some soul-stirring music.

I don’t know yeh film kaise ban gayi,’ wonders Arjun Rampal in one of the most honest moments of the baffling, boring Roy.Roy is so tangled in its inflated, erratic ideas of a pseudo mystery around parallel lives and loves that it ceases to make sense even before it takes off. Mostly, though, it’s just slow torture.

 The director, who is also the co-writer of the dialogue, knows the primacy of a kahani, if the lines his characters spout are any indication. He does not, however, follow it up with tangible action.One character puts it unambiguously: if a story is not going anywhere it is best to cut it short.But where, pray, is the story in Roy?Recommended only if you want to use the auditorium for a relaxing catnap. Roy will not wake you up.

So here are my questions. Who wrote this? Who is it for? The mystery and the enigma, which are set up lazily and obviously, never really take root. I haven’t seen something as fuzzy and dreary as ‘Roy’ in a long time : just what is Ranbir Kapoor doing in a movie like this?

I’m told releasing a film is not easy. One has to have a good story, get the cast in place, and convince a producer to back it and then get a studio to release it. After all kinds of checkpoints it’s appalling that this film has made it to the theatres.

Roy will stun your senses – because there hasn’t been a film this boring, this ridiculous and this pretentious since the time you can remember. Singh stretches his idea so much that after a point, you start wondering if this is a film at all. Roy is boring, exhausting and pretentious – save your money and time by staying away.

Royis at the core of it all a love story which finds a mysterious representation. If you are bored of watching cheesy romantic films and wish to watch a film that apes Hollywood style story telling with a desi plot, this one is for you. Could make up for a Valentines watch minus all the ‘mujhe tumse pyaar hogaya hai’ type drama.

Roy, which showcases Rampal as maverick filmmaker Kabir Grewal, is high on style and resembles a slick music video rather than a taut psychological drama.Watch this if your are in the mood to see a pair of good-looking men act like boys. .
